Cokie the Clown

"The lead singer from the band NOFX is under fire for giving out free shots of Patron during a recent show -- shots that appeared to have been watered down ... with the punk rocker's urine.

The guy accused of pissing everybody off -- Fat Mike -- put on a solo performance as his alter-ego "Cokie the Clown" at last week's South by Southwest festival in Austin ... covered by punk news website DyingScene.com.

Mike began the show by passing out the shots to fans and even downed a couple himself. But after a bizarre half hour in which Mike described his friend hanging himself, smothering his dying mother to death and milking a fan, Mike decided to show the crowd a very, very disturbing video.

The video appears to begin just moments before Mike took the stage and shows the singer urinating into a bottle of tequila ... and then serving it to the audience. The video did not appear edited.

So far, cops are not investigating the situation, but when we called the Austin Health Department to ask if they had taken any action, they told us they were unaware of the incident ... but would be looking into it.

Fat Mike told TMZ, "I confirmed that urine was not classified as a biohazard waste and not subject to the risks of legal ramifications of blood, semen, or feces." [TMZ]

The show took place at Emo's (who reportedly have banned Mike from ever coming back) on Saturday, March 20th (it was the Fat Wreck Chords showcase - 3 days after the BV show at the same place). Check out the TMZ-uploaded video of the incident, and information about the new restaurant Fat Mike is co-opening (yum?) in Park Slope, below....

Thistle Hill Tavern coming soon (Olive Vine used to be there)

NOFX

"A while back I reported that David Massoni (of 'inotecca) would be opening Thistle Hill Tavern with partners John Bush (a longtime East Village Bartender) and Mike Burkett (better known as Fat Mike of the seminal punk rock band NOFX). The restaurant, which will serve robust regional seasonal cuisine in a very laid back, turn-of-the-(last)-century Brooklyn tavern setting, will open in the next month or so.

The partners have just brought on chef and partner Rebecca Weitzman who has spent the last 2 and 1/2 years as Chef de Cuisine at 'inoteca LES. Prior to joining 'inoteca, she held several positions in Bobby Flay's organization at Bar Americain, Bolo and Mesa Grill, and she also spent a number of years in Colorado at Cafe Star, Luca di Italia and Mizuna.

She's planning a European and Mediterranean-influenced menu with a selection of apps and entrees featuring a hyper-seasonal array of local produce, dairy, and meat along with sustainable seafood. Stay tuned for more on the opening date." [the strong buzz]

More bewildering is why Fat Mike is part of a Park Slope restaurant consortium?

Posted by Anonymous | March 29, 2010 5:37 PM

like most NOFX fans haven't had urine in their mouths.

Emos is a shithole anyway. there's 10,000 other clubs in austin he can pee in. why is this a story?

Posted by Faux Hawk | March 29, 2010 5:49 PM

At least he didn't put any meat or animal products in the tequila.

That is an amazing joke to pull on the cretins at SXSW. NOFX is so much better than most of the hipster bullshit out there. The Decline is 15 minutes of brilliance.

Jokes on you guys for caring at all about any of this.

umm...I seriously thought the charge would be for supplying alcohol to minors as i didn't know NOFX fans were old enough to drink.

"That is an amazing joke to pull on the cretins at SXSW"

yeah, even funnier is the 30 or so individual lawsuits that fat clown is gonna have to pay off. I'm sure he'll be laughing his ass off when he gets the bill from his defense team

"Jokes on you guys for caring at all about any of this"

actually, the jokes on Fat Mike when no one eats at his piss shop

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 12:37 AM

From TMZ
#1 In texas assualt is simply defined as making someone feel fear
#2 he could very easily also be charged with tampering with a consumer product (which covers "giving away product") section c of the law provides that "A person commits an offense if he knowingly or intentionally threatens to tamper with a consumer product with the intent to cause fear"

fat mike is the new Jim Jones

did you watch the video? he only gave out maybe a half-dozen shots. and honestly they all seemed to take it well. I kinda doubt anyone's gonna be pressing charges.

so the logic is it's ok to tamper with a consumer product with intent to cause fear if it's only 6 people?

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 1:51 AM

no, the guy was making it seem like there's a mob of 30 people ready to sue his ass. when in reality it was just a handful of fans who seemed to take it as nothing more than a prank.

have we heard anything from any of the fans? or is this just TMZ stirring up shit, acting like people are really upset about it. I'm thinking the latter.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 2:01 AM

not once in the entire TMZ article do they identify who exactly is "pissed off". I'm betting no one is, they just thought it'd make a good story.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 2:06 AM

" According to TMZ.com, Fat Mike "confirmed that urine was not classified as a biohazard waste."

he left out the part of the "classification" that said.."unless of course the urine in question is Fat Mike's."

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 2:08 AM

what it an all ages show? what about underage piss drinking? do you get a wristband for that?

haha, you guys are all idiots for getting so worked up. cardinal rule: never accept a drink from a clown. and yeah, kudos for "pissing" off the "cretins" at SXSW, fucking douche fest. fat mike will be just fine and NOFX will continue to make bazillions of dollars while the dreams of young white males such as yourselves are lost on 9-5 jobs, cubicles, blogs, flannels shirts, crappy indie rock, fixed gear bikes and "pissy" comments. suck it.

is it just me or, in the video, do the people sound even happier and more "punk rock" once they find out about the urine?

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 11:16 AM

I've gone to nofx shows in the past but no more. When you disrespect fans like that, you don't deserve their money. I know fat mike isn't getting any more of mine. What he did is disgusting. Doing that to the fans who support you is inexcusable.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 11:33 AM

i heart BV, best way to kill time at work! awesome metal/punk coverage, beats the shit out of pitchfork, stereogum, etc. plus the comments are fucking great! more! the anger and frustration of all these people who werent even there is endlessly entertaining!

Posted by Brian | March 30, 2010 11:45 AM

where do all you people live? is everyone claiming brooklyn on here? was anyone at this show? did anyone drink the patron/pee? if so, how did it taste? will i get stupid wannabe snary answers from a some smarmy cunt who doesnt really live in brooklyn and was not there?

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 11:52 AM

11:01: "by the way, DC here. what say you?"

what are you claiming your set/turf? Typical 19 yr old wannabe hipster, probably still has his tounge ring, lives in the suburbs with his mommy who's dreaming of one day moving to the big apple.

It's safe to drink urine. Havent you guys seen Man Vs. wild?! Legal precedent!

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 12:50 PM

11:58 and others --

Why the fuck does it matter where someone is from? You stuck-up assholes make New York look like a really shitty place. I don't care where anyone is from, I appreciate people moving to New York because it's what makes our city the most diverse place on earth. Been seeing it first hand since growing up in and around Bay Ridge. People are absolutely allowed to rep NYC but if you're going to be a stuck-up douchebag about it, please, just stay out of the city. Thanks.

good lord i love these comments, keep em cumming! BV: please dont ever get rid of the comments section, too funny! and it's so easy too! anonymous shit talking! yeeeah! ps i'd have to venture that fat mike got the last laugh.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 1:52 PM

what's really funny is Fat Mike's people on here trying to veer off the topic of that fat idiot getting sued. like "where's everyone from? and it's safe to drink urine! and why is everyone getting so worked up and the "fans" took it as a prank! Please eat at our urninal when it opens!

what he did was wrong and all his millions aren't gonna get him out of it. who the fuck would eat at a restaurant where the douchebag pisses in what people consume? No regard for the health of any of those people huh?

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 3:19 PM

i definitely wont be eating at the restaurant after reading this story.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 3:25 PM

i wouldnt eat at the restaurant either but even if the joint tanks will it really affect his income or anything really? i mean, a failed restaurant? how many "stars" have tried to open a bar/grill/fancy eatery and fucking failed? a shit load. it will be interesting to see if he gets sued or not. i still think it's hilarious though i must say if i was one of the folks who got a "patron" shot i would be pretty pissed, no pun intended.

Posted by Anonymous | March 30, 2010 3:58 PM

it wont affect his income, but would be amusing if no one wanted to partner with him in the future for these sorts of ventures.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2010 11:04 AM

what the fuck does fat mike have to do with brooklyn?

Posted by i hate punk | April 3, 2010 11:26 AM

I was at the show. It was indeed urine. I'm sueing Fat Mike.

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2010 1:50 PM

Taking the oddity out of a taboo is what a punk does best. It's all about finding your self a crazy expirience that your mother might cringe at. Fat Mike and NOFX are legends and you have to love them to get them! Atleast they werent selling blood muffins :)
